Also, simply the Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout since they weren't allowed to put Wake N' Bake on the label.
I want to get a critique on the recipe.
Here is the info from their site:
OG: 20.8 Plato (my calculations are not great, so I'm guessing this is around 1.080 ish)
Here is a recipe I pulled from Morebeer's forum:
OG 1.084 (at 65% due to the high OG)
17.75 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US
1.25 lb Oats, Flaked
1.00 lb Black Barley
1.00 lb Chocolate Malt
0.75 lb Barley, Flaked
0.25 lb Black (Patent) Malt
1.50 oz Chinook [10.70 %] (60 min) Hops 39.0 IBU
2.00 oz Northern Brewer [6.50 %] (10 min) Hops 11.5 IBU
Spike from Terrapin suggests Wyeast 1272, so I'll stick with that. According to the Sunday Session podcast with Spike, he uses 1lb of ground coffee per BBL in a secondary. I plan to buy the Wake N' Bake blend
, which Spike formulated in conjunction with Jittery Joes (a local roaster in Athens).
I mainly want to nail down the recipe. I've only made one stout, so I'm pretty bad at knowing the correct amounts of dark grains.
I have a 5 gal mash tun, so I'll proabably mash 12ish lbs and make up the rest with DME.
